1) Elizabeth Bennet from Pride & Prejudice. She is such a fantastic example of a female heroine who doesn’t change to seek approval.
2) Sophie from Howl’s Moving Castle. She’s one of the first female fantasy characters I read who didn’t wait around for other characters to help her out of her problem.
3) Vin from Mistborn. Vin could be considered the typical fantasy heroine: orphan, discovers hidden powers, saves the world, but she does it in such a way that breaks the mold and she still gets the guy in the end.
4) Raisa from the Seven Realms series. The Gray Wolf Throne is the third book in the series where this character really comes into her own. She’s not likeable at the beginning of the series, but as the story progresses and we see how she comes out on top, it’s a wonderful transformation to witness.
5) Hermione from the Harry Potter series, specifically The Deathly Hallows. I think I’m in fantastic company because this hardly needs an explanation. Her bag of holding alone was a spectacular act of genius. She really should’ve been a Ravenclaw, but this book really showed how in the face of certain death, she would not go down without a fight-courage and valor, Gryffindor through and through.
